Default Hedgie Baby

Hi I'm quite new to the forum and I have an incredibly serious problem on my hands. Our hedgehog had babies about 8 or so weeks ago. She had two babies a male and female, the female baby has started eating and is doing really really well but the male wasn't eating at all and mommy has stopped giving milk. We've been trying to get him to eat but he's just losing a lot of weight and now we're trying to give him milk to get his strength back but he started vomiting the milk up just now. I have no idea what else to do, I'm going to take him to the vet tomorrow morning. Can anyone help me please???

Are the babies in the same cage with the mom still? Have you tried crushing up the kibble for the baby?

You need to syringe feed him now. And they are lactose intolerant so stay away from the milk.

And don't keep him in the same cage as mom and sister or you'll end up with more babies.
